The water appears to be “boiling” in front of the Conant home, east of Silver Eel Cove, early in August. “Boiling” water has also been observed off Wilderness Point, with lucky fishermen casting lines close to the disturbance.

“Boiling” water is usually caused by a feeding frenzy of larger fish during fall migration, when they move in and out of bait schools turning the surface into a “boiling” cauldron of activity, eating everything in sight.
